Southern Draw Cigars Announces Release of Jacobs Ladder

Southern Draw Cigars, the company that brought the renowned Kudzu, Firethorn, and recent Rose of Sharon cigars has announced their latest creation today – Jacobs Ladder.  The intent of this new release is to round out the Southern Draw Cigars line with a very rich and complex, full  body cigar.

Jacobs Ladder is described as a powerful blend with a core of Double Ligero. So if you like powerhouse cigars this may well  be one to add to your humidor.

jacobs ladderAs a deeply religious couple, Robert and Sharon Holt, owners of Southern Draw Cigars turned to scripture once again for their inspiration.

This time it is the book of Genesis 28:10.

Robert explains:

Jacobs Ladder is of course staying with the theme for all Southern Draw Cigars core blends, a hardy flowering plant with robust blue and purple flowers that has been used in many ancient medicines, however the Company selected the colloquial name for the connection between heaven and earth that Jacob, son of Isaac, dreamed about in the book of Genesis 28:10 whereas he “…had a dream, and behold a ladder was set upon the earth…”.  A dream with angels ascending and descending upon the earth and a powerful story of how the Lord may indeed lead us to a place of desolation to preserve our holiness, we may need to come away from everything that pulls us away from the Lord and take a time of rest or prayer which is the case with how Southern Draw Cigars has come about. 

Jacobs Ladder is also a symbolic reference to Ethan “Jacob” Holt, son of two of the Southern Draw Cigars founders, a strong, yet well balanced young man who continues to contribute by offering sales and valuable technical support for the brand he will hopefully someday, as in the case of Jacob in the Bible, inherit and be a steward of in the years ahead.
